Cannabis producers looking to enter BC’s legal market can now use a step-by-step online guide that helps simplify and streamline the licensing process.

“This new tool will provide clearer and more accessible information about how to enter the legal cannabis market in BC,” said Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth. “Transitioning more cannabis producers to the legal framework will help increase public health and safety, while creating stable jobs that support BC families and communities.” 

The guide helps businesses of all sizes with cultivating (such as growing and harvesting) and processing (including manufacturing and packaging) for commercial purposes in BC.

To date in B.C., there are 66 standard cultivation licence holders, 10 micro-cultivation licence holders, five nursery licence holders, 51 standard processing licence holders and two micro-processing holders.
